Went there before the opera started for quick dinner and it was pleasant. Enjoyed my salad and my fish very much. I wish I had more time to spend there and not to rush myself. The reason for the four stars and five is the price!

One of the most well balanced meals I have ever had. I had lubster soup, Opera's signature salad and cheese, in which one of them where a product of their own cow (they got a framed picture of her in the restaurant). The service is kind, skilled, charming without being too much. Delicate - do it! (I got 10% off... More

Good location close to Stadelhofen. Proper, schooled service. Usual combination of a la carte and daily specials. Looks like a place you might even get a table without a reservation

Well I have a theory and that is do not eat within 75 meters of a major attraction. Unfortunately this is no exception the food was ok but the wine list was ordinary and not well thought out. There was nothing wrong with the food but the ambiance and presentation of the restaurant gives you a high expectation. Great ambiance... More

Set back from the lake, the restaurant has a quiet relaxed atmosphere and the food is very good. Had far worse meals that cost a lot more elsewhere.

We chanced on this perfect restaurant behind the opera house. We had food with compliment s from the kitchen and it was absolutely delicious. Also a nice surprise. Lovely waitresses attended to us with attention to detail, nothing forgotten.

We went there since it is quite well rated. For a fish restaurant the menu offers very few fish dishes. The food was ok, but too oily. And very expensive for what you get. Wouldn't come again.

over all the meals were quite good, especially the water we asked for tap water but receive 2 small bottles which cost 13 CHK the most expensive water I have ever had. Service was good and staff were very friendly.

I went here with my wife for our anniversary dinner. Since we have a child we don't have the chance anymore to go out that often, so if we go it has to be good. Restaurant Opera was just like last year absolutely fantastic. We choose the Gourmet menu, which is a nice amount of courses with a lot of... More
